"Dream Weavers" September 1, 2011

update:

Our meet up is scheduled for 3pm (before Sail Away and life boat drill) on Deck 13 ~ Currents, it's outside so those with young kids can have some space. We are going to put a white board (actually it's a Disney Princess) on our cabin 7690 (very BACK of deck 7) with notes if there is any change! I'll have my cell on until we sail away, so if you want to call or text me, my number is listed on our private f/b page. (I'm going to post this info in post one also).

******************************
I just booked our family on the three night and I'm beyond excited. Hubby and I did a four night in September 2008 when we had a DFTW vow renewal for our 25th. Taking two of our children this time (they are adults now, lol); but already they are excited.

Looking for others that may be on this cruise. We have a FE from our first cruise.

Hi there!

I have just booked! It will be me (debbie) and my dd (15). We did a four night in 2009 and I am using the excuse that I have some unfinished business in Florida to bring me back and get us back on a cruise! I am hoping that the three night won't seem to short compared to the four night! We also have a FE from our first cruise, so you can def. count us in on that! Here's to getting to know each other!

Welcome aboard Debbie!!!! So glad someone has finally booked on 'our' cruise, lol. I was thinking we'd be the only Dis-ers on board. Hubby and I will be taking two of our children; dd (23 then) and ds (20 then) with us. They've never been on a cruise. Hubby and I did the four night in Sept 2008 for our 25th. I too am worried this will seem short, but am just so excited we can take our kids on their first cruise. (our old son did the Disney land and sea for his honeymoon).

Greetings Debbie and Daughter. I am sure for most people this is WAY to soon to be booking for a cruise, but, we found some awesome rates online and could not pass it up. From past experience this thread will get way long. I know 3 days will be too short but is a good teaser to want to come back again. SOON! Athens Greece? I was wondering about the accent. Do you get across the pond often?

Hi, actually, I am American, but met my hubby at uni and followed him to Greece! I have been living here for 17 years now, and have been back stateside 4 times since then, twice for long vacations and twice for short trips. Last year we all came over (4 of us, there are 2 daughters total) and we did Disney right (or as right as I could manage) I had planned that trip for a year and a half, and it went off well but it is hard to please everyone. I couldn't bear to stay away again for long, and I am using the excuse of having to take care of some family business to come over again with my youngest, who is a little more tolerant of my Mickey Madness... I am hoping to be able to do a lot of what we did last year... but I have noticed that the prices are not the same and, you know, I'm not sure if I have totally paid off that trip either Anyway, obsessing over the vacation for me is almost just as much fun as the vacation itself so here's to about 16 months of !

Debbie,

You need to change your siggie, you do have a trip coming up (granted it is still quite a ways away). Will you and your dd be doing WDW before and/or after the cruise?

Our plans at this moment, but may change since we have a long time to think about it, are that we'll fly down the day before, stay at the hotel near the port (think it was the Radisson ~ they provide free parking and shuttle to the port) and then after the cruise we'll drop our ds and dd at MCO to fly home and hubby and I will head to WDW for some time for us.

Hi Patricia! I will change it soon, I promise I was hoping for free dining before the cruise, but as the folks waiting for it this year are on pins and needles waiting to see if it will be offered, I am afraid things look pretty bleak for next year. We will def be doing some Orlando time before, but I don't know about where, yet. After we need to be hightailing it out of Dodge to make our way back to Greece. I still haven't worked out the logistics of it - whether to switch in Europe or New York, etc. School starts for us around Sept 10. Normally I would be starting earlier, but next year will be an exception.

You are right, the Radisson is very nice and does have a shuttle. I myself am considering doing Country Inn and Suites, I hear it is also nice and also has a shuttle. I can hardly wait!

We, too, will be embarking on this Dream! Our first cruise with me, my DH, DD (will be her 10th birthday!), DS ( will be 11 at the time) and my baby DS ( 9 at the time). I am sooo excited becausee my kids don't know. I am hoping I can keep it a secret.

Cathy, Welcome aboard!!! So glad to hear your family will also be traveling this cruise. So many of the other meet threads are several pages long right around our cruise date, but we are just getting started.

We cruised in Sept 2007 (just hubby and I) and met some wonderful friends via our Dis meet thread. Some of which I communicate with regularly now.

I know it is a long way off, but have you thought of when and/or how you'll tell the kids? One of our friends told her boys the morning of at breakfast in the hotel (we stayed near the port)! It was so cute to watch.

Debbie, they just announced free dining again for this year (late August to early October) so if they keep with that schedule, you should be ok for next year!

We are DVC members so we don't get to take advantage of free dining, but we don't have to pay for a hotel each time we come either

I've not heard of the Country Inn and Suites, I'll have to check it out.

Cathy and family! I don't envy you your challenge of trying to keep it a secret. I can't keep a secret for five seconds if it is about something so exciting. I even announced things to my kids last year like "we have an adr for kona" and they were like (We had never been before so they didn't know what on earth I was talking about)

Yes, I was relieved that they announced free dining for this year, it gives me hope for next year. I was a little sorry to see the change in the plan, so I am debating on whether to stay with quick service or to switch to regular dining plan. I will have to crunch some numbers, because it just might be a good excuse, ahem, reason to switch to moderate!!! I love the planning, the agony, the thrill!!

Pat, I am not saying that the Country Inn is better than the Radisson. I stayed at the Radisson last year and it was lovely! I am just thinking about the other one because I read some tips about how to manage it on priceline. I know I sound cheap, but I need to cut corners where I can to manage all the other stuff I want to do!!! Of course, the economy in my country is now really starting the major crisis (we just declared bankruptcy or something like that) which means they will raise my taxes even though I will be making less money, etc. All part of the thrill of the challenge!

But I still prefer dealing with corrupt Greek politicians over trying to keep a Disney cruise a secret!

Nice to have you with us!

Debbie, you don't sound cheap at all. We are all on a budget now a days (some tighter than others). Our last trip was a splurge as I had saved and put money away from each check so that we had it just about all paid for before going. I was reading something on the Dis recently about Priceline and hotels at the port. I have never used Priceline and always worry I'll end up at some 'run down dirty' place, lol.

Sorry to hear your country is 'bankrupt', things here are really bad in some areas. We are blessed that we still have our jobs and our mortgage is still getting paid. I work for a small real estate office and we sell properties for the banks that have foreclosed on them. It is sad to see how many there are out there. Just last week we got 5 or 6 new listings (that is a LOT, after a lull in things).

Well I am off to the gym and then work. Can't wait to 'get to know you' all here and on our cruise.
